National Security Adviser John Bolton says he discussed USA plans to withdraw from missile treaty with Russian Federation; national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin reports from the Pentagon.
It remains unknown whether Putin accepted the invitation.
Amid the disagreement with Russia over the United States' withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to visit Washington in early 2019, according to National Security Adviser John Bolton, Fox News reported Friday. It's unclear whether Trump would visit with Putin in the White House.
President Donald Trump held a summit with Mr. Putin in Helsinki, the Finnish capital, and then issued Mr. Putin an invitation to visit Washington in the fall. "What the schedule of that is, we do not quite know yet".

Last month, a drought-stricken farmer in NSW was given some relief after he won $200,000 in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. Lottery officials said the winning tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin.
Bolton said at the press conference later on today that his meetings with Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze, Foreign Minister Davit Zalkaliani, Defense Minister Levan Izoria and Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia were "very positive and very productive".
The topic of Mr Putin visiting the U.S. is a highly charged one, because USA intelligence agencies allege that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Mr Trump win.
Bolton has said Washington is in the process of deciding whether it will impose additional sanctions on Russia over the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain.
Besides, the leaders are to meet briefly in Paris next month, attending the centennial memorial service for the Armistice Day, which marked the end of the First World War on November 11, 1918. The U.S. has accused Russian Federation of violating the treaty first, by developing a new cruise missile.
